UK Study finds that Rape and Sexual Assault victimize One in Ten Women

Week in Review

Women have lost a lot since the hippy movement of the Sixties that turned them into sex objects for men to enjoy instead of becoming wives and mothers.  For it was a new world out there.  And women didn’t need to subject themselves to the horrors of wedded bliss.  For the women’s movement liberated them.  They could be whatever they wanted.  Do whatever they wanted.  And have sex whenever and with whoever they wanted.  Thanks to birth control.  And then abortion.  It was a time of empowerment.  And this empowerment led to a boom in pornography, strip clubs and prostitution.  And worse (see Rape Survey Shock: One In 10 Are Victims posted 3/12/2012 on Sky News).

As many as one in 10 women in the UK claim to have been raped, according to new research by parenting website Mumsnet.

The survey of 1,609 women found a tenth of those who responded had been raped and a third had been sexually assaulted.

More than four in five of the victims did not report their perpetrators to the police because of concerns over low conviction rates, embarrassment and shame…

Allison Saunders, chief crown prosecutor for CPS London, said: “I support the message of the We Believe You campaign, its aim to raise awareness of the extent of these crimes, and to challenge preconceptions.

“As a society we need to be aware of the myths and stereotypes that members of the public who become jury members may hold and which have the potential to influence court outcomes and ultimately lives.

In other words, women are NOT asking for it.  The problem is that the very people (liberals, feminists, etc.) who claim to support and defend women have objectified them.  Which is the unfortunate corollary to women exploring their sexuality and using birth control and abortion to empower themselves.  Because the underlying message is that women are NOT for marrying and raising a family with.  They’re for sex.  Sex without consequences.  Which can’t do anything but objectify women.  And when some knuckle-dragging Neanderthal can’t join in on some of that consequence-free sex when everyone else appears to be enjoying it their twisted little minds interpret that as a personal insult. 

Rape is not about sex.  It’s about power.  Control over women.  A violent response to a lifetime of rejection.  Or not being ‘good enough’ for a night of casual, meaningless sex.  These men blame women for their deficiencies.  Whatever it is that is wrong with them that prevents them from participating in the world of casual sex.  Because if everyone else is doing it and they’re not then something is wrong.  Either with themselves.  Which they refuse to accept.  So that leaves women.

The prevailing attitude about sex today is sending two different messages.  One that encourages women to liberate themselves from the horrors of wedded bliss and to go out and live life to its fullest.  And one that tells too many men that women are some THING just to have fun with.  Not a PERSON to honor, cherish, respect, etc.  And that is why our wives, sisters and daughters are suffering today from some of the most unspeakable of crimes.
